The last time there was any movement on Project Standamaran it was 5 months ago!!! A fly swap, Zack's final push towards getting his Blackbelt and a totally awesome pool league (all on top of fishing and normal life of course) all conspired to leave me with little or no energy for such a big project. No big deal, you can't really laminate fiberglass in the Winter without a heated garage around here anyways.
I am going to need to finish this thing soon if it is going to be ready for prime time on some of my bigger flats though - so in the last couple of weeks I got off my butt and made some serious progress.
The first next step was to round the edges on the pontoons and glue them to the platform with Gorilla Glue.
Then I added some foam in order to smoothly transition between the platform and the pontoons:
Then I did the final shaping of all the edges and transitions and sanded everything with 40 or 60 grit. All I have left to do is finish filling and smoothing the most egregious dings and dents and then I am ready for fiberglass!!! It weighs 13lb without the fiberglass, I am expecting it to come out around 26lb final weight.
